Will America have a Revolution in 2016? - Updated

America is ripe for a revolutionary shakeup of the Duopoly and Democrat Alan Grayson and Republican Paul Nehlen are the Patriots ready to lead the revolution.

Americans are sick of our quid pro quo government where the career politicians serve only their paymasters.  The two parties have corrupted the election process through punitive voter I.D. laws, corrupted electronic vote tallying machines, media monopolies and billionaire financed campaigns.  Will America revolt in 2016?

Revolutions start from the ground up, not the top down.  The two parties discourage and defund any candidate not likely to continue the quid pro quo government but now the country is in revolt.  It’s time to dump the well protected, pampered party leadership and their handpicked minions.

Paul Ryan Billionaires’ Bagman

Paul Ryan, the darling of the duopoly has never done anything other than serve the parties’ billionaire backers.  During his 17 year political career he has not sponsored any bills of consequence and yet he has become Speaker of the House.  Why?  What has Ryan accomplished?

Ryan’s claim to fame has been his budgets that have devastated America’s working families and military families.  Budgets that left America with crumbling infrastructure, privatized education and a bloated a Pentagon with $8.5 trillion missing from its coffers.

Paul Ryan Hamlet of the House

Donald Trump has touched the outrage left in the wake of the quid pro quo government with his “message of putting Americans first.”  Having secured the nomination with his wildly popular “make America great again” campaign, Trump finds he must now fight Ryan and his masters to secure the nomination he already won.

Paul Ryan the GOP Convention Chair told CNN’s Jake Tapper he is unwilling to support candidate Trump.  Ryan stated Trump “inherits something … that’s very special, the party of Lincoln and Reagan and Jack Kemp.”

The arrogance demonstrated by Paul Ryan prompted Patrick Buchanan to write an article in Lew called “Who Promoted PrivateRyan?” Buchanan refers to Ryan’s statements as millennial teen-talk spoken by our “Hamlet of the House.”

Buchanan points out that Trump has not inherited anything he has won in national contests whereas Ryan has never won a statewide election let alone a national election.

On CNN Sarah Palin the former governor of Alaska and John McCain’s 2008 running mate said Ryan has disrespected the will of the people.  “I think Paul Ryan is soon to be 'Cantored,' as in Eric Cantor.”  Palin was referring to the former GOP house whip Eric Cantor who lost his reelection bid in 2014 in a stunning upset. 

After spending 13 years in congress as “Wall Street’s Bagman” Cantor rebounded with a $1.4 signing bonus and a $2 million annual compensation package from investment bank Moelis & Co.

Sarah Palin will campaign for Paul Nehlen

When further questioned by Tapper as to whether Palin would support Paul Ryan’s challenger in Wisconsin, Paul Nehlen, Palin said absolutely.   “I will do whatever I can for Paul Nehlen."  This man is a hard-working guy, so in touch with the people," Palin said. "Paul Ryan and his ilk, their problem is they have become so disconnected by the people whom they are elected to represent."

Democratic establishment supports Grayson opponent Murphy

On the Democratic side Florida Congressman Alan Grayson is running for the Senate seat vacated by Marco Rubio.  Grayson, a true Democrat who fights for America’s interests over the interests of the military industrial complex, is on the leadership’s hit list.

The Obama White House and the Democratic establishment are campaigning for “moderate” U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy.  Murphy, a “former” Republican is for banking deregulation, a work requirement for food stamp recipients, and voted for the Keystone XL pipeline.  Murphy also wants to form another committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks.

As a matter of fact, Murphy has voted with Republicans twice as often as he has voted with Democrats.  In the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life” the main character, George Bailey provides affordable loans to low income families to buy homes.  The corrupt banker, Mr. Potter takes advantage of an opportunity to destroy Bailey and incarcerate him on false charges.

Bailey decides to commit suicide but is stopped when his guardian angel Clarence shows him what his hometown Bedford Falls would look like if he were never born.  In real life America’s guardian angel has provided an opportunity for Americans to see what America will look like if the duopoly is successful in destroying the candidacies of Alan Grayson and Paul Nehlen.  That example is Kentucky.

Kentucky election results “flipped”

The result of the November gubernatorial election I Kentucky “stunned the nation” when tea party candidate Matt Bevin became the second Republican governor since 1971.  Bevin had been trailing his Democratic opponent in all of the polls, but when the electronic tallying machine spit out the results, Bevin had won 53 to 44%, a 15 point comeback.  

Kentucky’s new Republican Governor Matt Bevin actually ran on a religious quid pro quo platform.  At the time Bevin was running for office there were two religious cases winding their way through Kentucky’s court system.  One case involved extending $18 million in state tax breaks for Answers in Genesis’ religious theme park which planned to limit hiring to Christians only.  

Bevin campaigned on a promise to secure $18 million in tax breaks for the biblical theme park called Noah’s Park.  The park is the pet project of Australian-born Christian Fundamentalist Ken Ham president of Answers in Genesis.  Bevin slashed Kentucky’s budget for colleges and universities requiring tuition hikes and layoffs to pay for expansion of I-75 where Ham’s Ark Encounter amusement park is located.

Bevin has earmarked $62 million in TIF bonds to pay for the construction of Ham’s biblical theme park.  The purpose of TIF or Taxpayer Increment Financing is to revitalize “blighted” communities and to attract developers and create jobs.  If those university professors hope to get a job at Ham’s creationist park they will have to be willing to teach that Jesus rode on dinosaurs. 

Developers receive interest free loans, then rather than the property taxes going back to the community, the tax revenue is diverted to pay off the loan.  If the project fails, the developers are off the hook and investors and taxpayers must repay the loan.  The 800 acres surrounding the park are not part of the non-profit park so the parking will be privately.  That is quid pro quo Kentucky style.

So the question is, will America have a revolution in 2016?  Has America had enough?  It’s up to you America, join the revolution and take America back starting with electing Senator Alan Grayson and Congressman Paul Nehlen.
